Summary

Trapped in classrooms where only boring lectures and rote memorization are occurring, many students dream of escape... But what if the very act of escaping from a classroom became an opportunity for all sorts of deeper learning? In this summit, we will take a trip to a "puzzle room," where we will have a limited amount of time to collaboratively solve a series of puzzles in order to escape! Once back, we will unpack and hack the puzzle room experience--how could we use available materials and space in our schools to create similar collaborative, problem solving experiences for our students?
